I just want to take a moment to reflect on the victims who were murdered at the Emanuel AME church. For the record, I knew one of the victims, Miss Cynthia Hurd. We worked together at the College of Charleston’s Robert Scott Small Library. He was a librarian who was always professional, kind, and smart. She cared about helping people find the books/articles you needed for projects. She also had a wealth of knowledge she shared on occasion. It was always great to speak with her. It leaves me speechless that her, and many others had their lives taken in a senseless act of murder.
I’m too upset to write more. Needless to say there was a memorial for the victims today.
